Malaga fullback Vitorino Antunes is interesting Chelsea.

The Daily Star says the £10million-rated Antunes, 26, has been capped by his country at every level up to the senior side.

New Blues manager Jose Mourinho sees him as the perfect man to provide cover for veteran Ashley Cole.

But a stumbling block could be the ­arrival of Bernd Schuster as the new Malaga boss.

The German legend says he wants to ­assess his squad before making any ­decisions on who stays and goes.
